Another must do stop in the citadel, again well restored, and provides some interesting history on the recent rulers of Vietnam. Worth taking some time on the citadel tour to understand

Right behind the main entrance, this vast and richly-decorated building, very well restored, gives a stunning first look to the Imperial Palace and a good idea of the splendor of the N'guyen dynasty. My only regret: no pictures inside...

It is one of the surviving palace buildings within the old Imperial Citadel. It is a beautiful Nguyen palace with original furniture, fittings, decoration and artwork. Many of the palaces in the citadel are damaged, however, this palace is in a good condition.

A beautiful Nguyen palace with original furniture and fittings, specifically for each Nguyen king so memorialized. Has an alter for each along with his Royal bed. Great video presentation inside helps with understanding it all. Enjoy!

Many palaces in the citadel are damaged. However, this palace is in a good condition. I am not sure whether it is restored or not. Very easy to find as you enter the main gate for ticket checking.

Worth visiting, this structure retains some of the essential characteristics of life in the forbidden city. It is also remarkably cool, despite the weather.
